This cartoon pretty much sums up my day yesterday. I don’t have time or energy to explain further ….let’s just say it was a long, painful day which would have been pretty downright disastrous except for Harvey, Doodle, and Lassie who chauffered me to my appointment, watched all the proceedings with my new wound vac…(now a part of me for at least a month…wherever I go it goes.) The ‘Terrific Trio” also persevered at CVS until my pain meds finally arrived! They are my everyday heroes! I will love you forever!
(*When I forget to bring my new body part along… I know because the tubes coming out of the top of my pants jerk my pants down. I go nowhere without Hailey the Healer.)
Yesterday should have been Halloween ….pretty spooky with strange happenings that just added to an overall uncomfortable day. I know I will adjust to having another “body part” attached to me but it will take time and patience. Just keep holding my hand God!
Roz VanAlstyne sent me a fall picture of Indiana…a little out from their present home. It is beautiful…but like most of the rest of us she said fall has come late and will only be “in season” for probably about a week this year. Sometimes we appreciate beauty like this for its fleeting brevity.
Halloween didn’t come a day early at Jake’s pre-school…but it was western day and the cutest little cowboy showed up for it.
I am beyond sad that I am missing my first Halloween trick or treating with the grandchildren but “Hailey” (wound vac) and I have to have some time to figure out showers, dressing, bathroom techniques and many other obstacles together before I can leave the premises. We need time to bond.
So until tomorrow…Thank goodness today is a new day filled with hope that soon “All this will pass” and dim into a distant memory…one in which I traveled through once and prayerfully won’t have to travel again.

Leaving you with a smile today for Halloween….Happy Halloween everyone!
